A harvest of world folk tales by Milton Rugoff( Book )

5 editions published between 1949 and 1968 in English and held by 928 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"All categories of folk tales are represented: Märchen, legends, myths, jests and drolls, fabliaux, fairy tales, fables, tall tales; dramatic, romantic, and fantastic tales; ghost stories and animal stories; moral tales and mystery stories. The prime requisite which Mr. Rugoff kept in mind was readability. Next was variety. During the years in which he has been working on this volume he has read about 20,000 stories. Another criterion was that the stories must be sufficiently interesting to the mature mind, for this is not, as many others have been, a collection intended principally for children. However, no bawdy tales are included, and this is a book for the whole family to enjoy. In its more than 750 pages are many hours of fascinating reading of the stories that have come to us down the ages and will doubtless prove immortal."--Publisher's description
